Chapter 7. Creating the Destination Report

When you need another report from a database, it isn’t always necessary to create the report from scratch. Many are simply variations of existing reports. We’ve already created a Mileage Report that groups trips by month (refer to Chapter 6). To create a new report that is similar to the first one, we can duplicate the initial report and then make any necessary changes to the fields, Subsummary parts, and sort instructions. In this chapter, we’ll duplicate the Mileage Report and modify the duplicate to create a destination-based report, enabling you to quickly see your year-to-date mileage for each destination, as well as the number of trips to each destination.
